The 802.11n wait is over

 Well, it’s about time:

The wait for the first 802.11n draft 2.0 products is over. D-Link announced Friday that it was the first company to have its products certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, which controls standards for wireless networking.

This standard had a longer gestation period than an elephant, I think. It’ll probably be a year before I upgrade my home network, although this Xtreme N Gigabit Router is tempting. How about you? Anybody out there dying for faster Wi-Fi?

And a word of caution: You’ll probably start seeing all sorts of deals on Draft N equipment. I said it before and I’ll say it again: Just say no.

  1. I have been waiting “patiently” for Draft N to be completed. I need better range more than the speed. I hope that the range will be what I am anticipating.

  2. Feels like the G standard just came out the other day!!! Oh well, can’t stop progress….I think I’ll stick with the G spec for quite some time because the only thing that uses the wireless is my laptop…and G is more than enough for it since I don’t see the point of streaming stuff to my laptop. Do a lot of you have wireless receivers on your desktops?

  3. If DLink is my only option at this point, I will wait…until H311 freezes over if necessary. Their customer service is awful!

    I really need the range improvements, but will wait as long as necessary for other vendors.

  4. it is still “Draft” .
    is mean that i can for sure upgrade that router to N no draft ?
    what the certification means on that ?
